Terms of Doing Ath-Thahaarah ~ Hi all readers! In the previous article, I explained the types of ath-Thahaarah. In this article, I will explain the requirements for doing ath-Thahaarah. All Muslims, be they women or men, must know about it because there are some services that require someone to be in a holy state.

Ten Terms of Doing ath-Thahaarah

In Islamic teachings, there are ten terms of doing ath-Thahaarah;

First; the person must be Muslim.

I think the explanation of this first point is very clear. The first and ultimate requirement that a person is obliged to be holy is that he must be Muslim, so he has an obligation to perform some religious rituals in a pure condition. But there are Islamic scholars who say that the main condition is the arrival of Islamic teachings. The point is if the person has heard or knew that there is an Islamic religion that invites all human beings to be followers, but he is not reluctant to be his followers, he remains non-Muslim, he is still obliged to doing purify.

Second; intelligent.

Given the requirement of a person to be intelligent it tells us that the madman and the unconscious are not obliged to be holy unless the madman has healed and the unconscious person is conscious of his unconscious while there is still time to perform an obligation, such as prayer. But this sacred obligation does not go away if someone is drunk. In other words, drunk people are still required to doing purify.

Third; baligh.

The meaning of baligh here is the age limit of a person obliged to carry out obligations in Islam. to know someone already adult (baligh) age or can not go through five things; he has dreamed of having sex, growing feathers in the vital tool, menstrual discharge (for women), pregnant (for women), certain age limits.

There is a difference of opinion about a person’s age limit in adult (baligh). Some say; fifteen years. Some say; seventeen years. Imam Abu Hanifa says; eighteen years. Thus, it is not obligatory for a child to be holy, but he (the child) is ordered to be holy (and perform other duties) at the age of seven. At the age of seven years a child is only ordered (recommended) to perform religious duties in order for him to get used to it. If at that age he does not want to obey, then his parents should not nail. His parents are allowed to hit if the child does not want to perform obligations at the age of ten.

The Prophet Muhammad said;

مُرُّوْا أَوْلَادَكُمْ بِالصَّلَاةِ وَهُمْ أَبْنَاءُ سَبْعِ سِنِيْنَ وَاضْرِبُوْاهُمْ عَلَيْهَا وَهُمْ أَبْنَاءُ عَشَرَ وَفَرِّقُوْا بَيْنَهُمْ فِي الْمَضَاجِعِ
